Probably the biggest effect on a planet with a faster rotation would be more dramatic wind patterns; hurricanes, cyclones and anticyclones would rotate faster, and so on. Having a greater axial tilt would also cause more dramatic and more seasonal weather, although (according to some simulations I've seen) a planet with a greater tilt would probably have smaller ice caps or none at all. None of this would make life impossible, as far as I can see.
